“will certainly be back...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2008

New, clean rooms. Extras like tea/ coffee-maker, LCD tv and rain shower. Pillows on the pillow menu not available but very comfortable beds and pillows...
Run the taps for about 3 mins for hot water before calling House keeping in a huff... I made that mistake. Well stocked mini bar, wi-fi connection available.

The nicest food available in Jaipur at very reasonable prices. Superb coffee shop and breakfast.

Ginseng, the oriental Restaurant on the rooftop has a spectacular view and good food.

The managers, Mr. Roy, Mr Sanjay and Mr Gaurav have however shown me how excellence can exist along with the an attitude from hell.

My bookings for a table of 15 were not met, the tables requested were not given and the icing on the cake was when i went to clear the cheque for my party, I was informed that one of my guest had cleared the bill !!!
The manager would not tell who it was and after making a lot of noise I was informed that the manager had accepted Rs. 50,000/- in cash for a 16, 000 bill !

The balance was still in his pocket. How and when planned to return it to my guest is still a complete mystery as this happened at 1 am after the guest had left and my departure was at 7 am !!!

A threat of a bad review on this website left them unperturbed.

However, I must reiterate that the hotel is very good and I will certainly stay there. I wish I could say the same about Ginseng

We stayed at the Royal Orchid during a short stay in Jaipur and it was an excellent stay (new rooms, excellent showers and bathroom, great service, huge king size bed, amazing food at the hotel restaurant, flat screen t.v., dry cleaning and laundry services, and wonderful front desk staff). We planned this trip to Jaipur extremely last minute, so we had not even researched hotels before we arrived in Jaipur. Our driver took us to a few hotels that were horrible before we checked out the Royal Orchid (the other hotels had ants in the room, cockroaches in the bathroom so were extremely relieved when we saw the rooms at Royal Orchid). The price is extremely fair for a brand new hotel with all the modern luxuries. We felt as if we had not left the U.S. when staying at the Royal Orchid. One added bonus is the great restaurant in the hotel. They had a great buffet breakfast that was included and an extensive a la carte menu for dinner. This was important for us, as we only ate fully cooked food at hotel restaurants while traveling in India (we didn't want to get sick). You will love the bathroom. There is a shower that drops water from the ceiling....something I haven't even seen in hotels in the U.S. yet.

Be warned...if you arrive in Jaipur you will be constantly bombarded by "travel guides" claiming they can help you with getting around the city. At first we were skeptical, but we ended up using 2 guides on our two days there to show us around Jaipur for a small fee. But they only speak Hindi for the most part, so if you need an English speaking guide it might be hard to find one. They ended up being extremely informative and helped us navigate the city. I guess it's just luck of the draw as to whether you get a good tour guide or not, but we were extremely happy.

Also, no matter what hotel you book, before paying ask to see the room you have payed for. They are more than willing to do this. We almost stayed at a different luxury hotel in Jaipur and we would have ended up getting a smoking room if we hadn't asked to see the room first.
